Croatia is an exciting place for gourmets and food connoisseurs. Every region in the country has its own distinct culinary identity. Its mainland cuisine is shaped by Hungarian, Viennese and Turkish influences, whereas the coastal region’s cuisine draws inspiration from Mediterranean kitchens – including Italian and French cooking.
France is not only home to some of the world’s most stunning scenery: it’s also famous for its exquisite and refined kitchen. From meticulously prepared haute cuisine to perfectly aged cheeses, rare red wines and spectacular champagnes: these award-winning French restaurants and top chefs offer harmonious and delicious dishes – with a sprinkle of je ne sais quoi.
Welcome to the country with one of the world’s highest number of Michelin 3-star restaurants. Shaped by its federal history, German cuisine doesn’t only share cooking traditions with Poland and the Czech Republic: in the more Southern regions, like Swabia and Bavaria, it also shows similarities with the Austrian and Swiss kitchen.
Along with Ireland’s social and political climate, the country’s cuisine has also changed, evolved and transformed. Traditional Irish kitchen is strongly shaped by its crops and farmed animals – as well as the potato, which was introduced in the second half of the 16th century and quickly became a popular ingredient because of its versatility.
From rigatoni and risotto to finger-licking good tiramisu: Italy’s cuisine is simply unparalleled. Contrary to popular belief, the Italian kitchen is extremely diverse. Northern and Southern Italy each have their own distinct culinary character and offer different variations on the same dishes.
It’s no secret that the Netherlands is famous for its wide variety of heavenly cheeses. But what this small country is also renowned for, is its extensive fishing industry. The coastal fishermen on the North Sea still supply restaurants throughout the country with the finest high-quality fresh seafood. Raw Dutch herring is a culinary delight during the beginning of summer, and a must-try if you venture out here for the first time.
The cuisine of Romania has evolved a lot as a result of its contact with several different traditions. As a result, you may find a variety of dishes here, all retaining their own distinct flavour. In addition to Ottoman cuisine, other neighboring cooking styles such as German, Bulgarian, Serbian, and Hungarian, have also been a big influence.
Serbian cuisine includes countless varieties of flavours and scents, which combine the best the Balkan region has to offer. You’ll find a unique blend of Middle Eastern and European influences, which result in a hearty cuisine with an intricate balance of rich meats, vegetables, breads, cheeses, and delicious pastries.
Both in its geography and in its cuisine, Slovenia is a place of striking contrasts. In the region along the Italian border, you can enjoy a delicious light Mediterranean diet consisting of prosciutto ham and olive oil. However, it’s more common for people in the far north and east to feast on heavier foods, with a lot of grains, potatoes, pork, and pumpkin oil.
When you think of Spain, in addition to splendid sunshine along with warm hospitality, you also think of fiestas and siestas – and most noteworthy, the delicious Mediterranean food. From tapas to churros, the excellent Spanish cuisine has incredibly high quality and endless diversity to choose from, and is arguably the finest in the world. Spain is blessed with a clear sense of culture and gastronomy, making this country an absolute pleasure to visit.
It’s no wonder Switzerland is such a popular tourist destination and continues to draw many visitors to its beautiful surroundings each year. Its breathtaking lakes, the picturesque Jura mountains, and the variety of the Alps are distinctively unique to the Swiss countryside. In addition to this, the food here should excite you as well.
English cooking, although distinct in its own right, shares many characteristics with international cuisines. During the time of the British Empire, and subsequent to post-war immigration, many ingredients and recipes were imported from North America, China, and India. Additionally, French cuisine affected English recipes during the Victorian era.
